We had a lovely dinner with some friends and a child. The service was quick and courteous, the appetizers came fast and we really like the taste of them and dinner was good. Not the best but good.

I returned the second night to not enjoy the same level of service, and I let them know, restaurant is Greek theme, I understand they have a new chef, calamari was great! They need to learn... More

I see the reviews from fellow travelers unhappy with the regular sit down for dinner experience. I can not review that part of the establishment, but can give my 2 cents on sitting at the bar. After coming from Aruba restaurant one block down by the pier and unable to "get" to the bar and getting a server at a... More

Felt sorry for the servers, very poor management by the food/beverage managers that they were out of several items on a FRIDAY night! No Jack Daniels, No Cabernet Sauvignon, No ribs etc... etc... etc.. what we did have was horrible! We paid for the drinks and left. Keep moving on.....

We went there on a Friday night was able to get seated quickly. It was our first visit and the menu featured Greek dishes. We've frequented other Greek restaurants in the area, but was really disappointed with both the grilled octopus and the gyro salad. The octopus wasn't char-grilled, it was rubbery, chopped up and was lacking flavor. My husband... More

We went here for lunch on a Friday afternoon and were disappointed by the food. One of our friends ordered the fish sandwich and was told they were out of all fish except calamari and shrimp, she then ordered a turkey club only to be told they were out of turkey. This was a Friday so you would think they... More

Their food was average. Compared to the other restaurants in the area, I would rate them as average. I have never seen a crowd there compared to the other restaurants.
